Sunflower Field in Ohio Video
Our warm sunshine days are coming to an end in Ohio as Winter approaches. This late afternoon hubby and I hit the road in the convertible (Mazda Miata). Heading southeast just to enjoy the sun that was fighting back the rain clouds on the way. Can you imagine our surprise to find all these sunflowers?! Check out the video and images below:
About Sunflower Field in Ohio
The video and image capture is from along the edge of the sunflower field. These crops are privately owned and I DO NOT recommend anyone walking into the field without permission. There are tons of bees and other pollinators enjoying the flowers so its best not to disturb.
My friend Leslie Riker grows a few different varieties each year as a result, there are plenty pollinators in her farm. Leslie shares that her sunflowers spread smiles!
Sunflowers are an amazing crop for rotations because they help in long-term management of weeds and diseases. The plants add biomass to the soil after harvest not to mention how beautiful they are! A resource I enjoy from UC Cooperative Extension can be found at ucanr.edu .
If you would like to visit Sunflower Fields that are open to the public check out the list on Ohio.org. Be sure to click on each farm to make sure the sunflowers are in season because most varieties only bloom during the late summer season. I enjoy checking out all these new locations because it is always a fun adventure.
